There were so many amazing things about you, it would be challenging to call out a few. Nonetheless, what has always stood out most about you was your love of God, your children and your grandson. I pray that God will continue to watch over and protect them and give your family the strength that they need to get through this challenging time. Rest in love gentle giant! Rest in love❤️

Big Fred

Fred,
Hard to gather the words to say and express how we feel. Everything is a reminder of you, your smile and laugh. Our last days with you are special and perfect. Our kids love you and miss you. And my heart is broken without you. Caedyn said he was going to be big and strong like his dada and we both know he’s not to far from that at 3. Our daughter Caylee like you is quiet about her feelings. But thinks of your funny ways. I know we aren’t alone. We know you will watch over us always. We love you always and miss you. And I will kiss the kids for you as you always ask. Rest and know you are in our hearts.

Coach Barnes was my brother, he made sure I always had a smile on my face (my husband died in July of 2020) Coach Barnes had the other coaches checking on me,
one day he told me to come to the gym at 11:00, when I did, he told the 1st graders that we had a special guest (me, Mrs, Martin)
they played the song "cutie pie, you brighten up my day...."
everyone started to dance, and have a good time.
Thanks Coach Barnes i will always love you.
you will be truly missed by all.
Thanks for calling me your CP, I will always remember you whenever I hear that song.
Rest in God's amazing peace my brother.

Barnes,

What can I say big brother. You know that I am never at a loss for words. I ALWAYS have something to say. This time, for the first time in life, I’m almost speechless and can’t put into words on how deep I am hurting with you not being here. This pain cuts deep as if we are blood relatives man. Seeing you in the gym daily cracking jokes with me and Coach Spencer, me scooping the back of your head saying “wassup baldilocks”, watching Coach Landry getting on to you to check you back into place when something didn’t quite sit right with you, the many memories of us all just having fun in the gym and zoom like a family, is priceless. I am going to miss you big brother because you got on my nerves daily, just like I got on yours lol. At the end of the day, we had mad love for each other like a brother and sister would. I miss you my brother. Although gone in the flesh, your spirit and the memories will forever live on and never be forgotten. Love you man.
